Award-winning global design studio, XM, is set to unveil its first-ever flagship concept store in Singapore, bringing XM’s most extensive collection of statue collectables.
Having opened its doors on 23rd March, the flagship store will occupy 19,000 square feet across the third floor of Kitchener Complex and boast a premium lifestyle experience with over 300 prized statue collectables conceptualized and designed in-house.
These include designs inspired by Marvel, DC, Hasbro, Godzilla and more, and will include lifestyle products, apparel and collectibles to be released in phases following the launch.
Founded in 2012, XM Studios is a Singapore-based global design studio specialising in the creation of hand-crafted luxury collectables. XM Studios is recognised annually by various international industry bodies as one of the best design houses in pop culture collectables, having scooped up numerous awards from community-led events such as the Statue Forum Awards.
XM Studios was the winner of Singapore’s Emerging Enterprise Award in 2018 and was previously awarded a prestigious “Mickey” award by Disney for Product of the Year.
The store serves as a platform to showcase the licensed products created by XM since its inception, with the aim of diversifying its portfolio and giving consumers the chance to experience its wide range of products in an immersive setting.
Going beyond the screens and pages, XM invites fans to explore the different pods complete with plentiful photo opportunities.
As a design studio, XM is extremely proud to be pushing the boundaries of collectible experiences with this first-of-its-kind store where fiction and reality are bridged in a single space. Here, our biggest gallery of statue collectibles and our ever-passionate team look forward to welcoming our community and fans from around the world to experience XM right here in Singapore.

Within the store are themed pods with statue collectables in various sizes inspired by well-loved universes, ranging from Marvel, DC, and Ultraman, to Godzilla and Transformers.
The Transformers-themed pod features XM’s latest Optimus Prime and Megatron busts that span a height of almost 1 metre.
Several never-before-seen statue collectables will make an appearance, including that of Spider-Man–Absolute Carnage and the highly anticipated Avengers–Maestro (Exclusive) inspired by Marvel characters and DC’s Death Metal-Batman Who Laughs. Fans can also pre-order these items in store.
Additionally, to nurture a deeper affinity with their legion of global collectors, Live@XM, an open broadcast studio is designed to develop richer digital content from new product teasers, podcasts, unboxing videos, to exclusive interviews and more.
On the edutainment front, XM will host future in-house programmes with industry partners and licensees on art, design, gaming, comics, and collectables, to support and inspire a young community of artists.
To round out visitors’ experience at their stores, the space also hosts 99 Gelato Coffee Bar, serving premium coffee, tea, pastries, and gelato, as well as UNIC, a lifestyle store featuring curated designer and luxury items.
The XM Studios Concept Store is located on Level 3 of Kitchener Complex, located right by Lavender MRT Station (Exit B), and is open from 11 AM to 8 PM on weekdays, and 10 AM to 8 PM on weekends.
